In 2024, it’s predicted that what can increase the value of someone’s property is going to change. Just like fashion, the trends in home sales and home ownership change regularly.
If you’re looking to sell your home in 2024, there will be some things that are worth investing in to ensure that you get the most back on your investment.
With this in mind, if you’re eager to sell a property in the coming year, here are some of the things to add or upgrade to ensure that you get the right amount from a sale.
Get Solar Panels Installed
OK, so this isn’t exactly a brand-new trend when it comes to upping the value of your home. However, if you have solar panels fitted to your home, you can add thousands to the value of your home simply because this option will save money in the long term and it’s also a form of green energy.
When it comes to understanding solar panels and how to use them, there are some maintenance tips that have to be adhered to, such as cleaning the panels and making sure that there’s no grit or debris accumulation. Apart from that, they’re pretty simple to care for.
The old-fashioned design of having wooden beams visible on a ceiling has come back around, and in 2024, this is set to be an incredibly desirable feature in homes that are on the market.
Indeed, real estate agents have noticed that in 2023, homes that have vaulted or decorated ceilings have sold for more than homes with blank ceilings, so it’s well worth looking into exposing wood beams when possible or even having them fitted if you can.
Going back to solar panels for a moment, one of the reasons they’re so popular is because they are green energy, which a lot of people are eager to have in their homes this coming year. If you can, it’s worth investing in as many forms of green energy as you can, such as triple-glazed windows, solar panels, LED lights, and even smart meters.
You may have noticed that this list seems to be mixing older designs with newer tech. It seems that a lot of people like the idea of having a modern home that has retro features at the same time. If you don’t have a fireplace in your living room, it’s well worth installing one, as a fireplace speaks volumes about class while also being a desirable feature for many people who are looking to buy a home. It doesn’t have to be an open fireplace; even a mantel with an electric fire will do.
Smart Home Features
Smart features throughout your home can also be a great way to add value. Having an AI assistant, as well as smart lights, a front door camera, and a smart meter, can all work to add value to your home. Just make sure that when you get an AI assistant, like an Alexa, that it’s compatible with the other smart tech in your home, or you’ll waste a lot of money.
